Happy Birthday Mom

Mom had a nice birthday lunch today - we drove to Good's Furniture in Kewanee to meet up with Aunt Carol, Aunt Rosemary and Cousin Peggy. It was a great day for driving and we even got there a little early and did some furniture shopping. Mom has been looking for a new sofa and wing chair - the sofa she has in her living room now is from the late seventies. Enough said.

The Good's Wine Cellar restaurant was especially busy for a Thursday. We were able to order pretty quickly after going through everyone's dietary seeds, dairy, spicy, etc. When the waitress got around to Peggy she just said "I'll eat anything you put in front of me." Of course we had dessert and mom ordered the banana creme pie that was a mile high. Mom got a lot of nice gifts (of which I left mine on the dining room table and remembered halfway to Geneseo): an embroidered sweatshirt, a bangle bracelet from the triplets, a special sister statute and a really nice flower arrangement.

The funny topic at the table was the popular video-of-the-moment. They all knew about it from somewhere - the news maybe? - and it was worth a few chuckles. The video is of a couple of computer newbies were trying to figure out how to take a picture of themselves on the computer and somehow they recorded themselves and it ended up on YouTube. So when I got home I had to look it up and it is pretty funny.
